The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has merged Karachi's North Sector flight information region into the Lahore region in order to expand the Lahore region, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

The TV channel reported the newly merged regions will be operational from Saturday (today). The CAA Director-General will inaugurate the newly merged Lahore area control centre on Saturday. 

From now onwards, the air traffic moving from Rahim Yar Khan, Sukkur, Panu Aqil, Jacobabad and Quetta will now be managed by the Lahore region.

The TV channel reported PCAA has increased its airspaces and flight sectors while implementing international aviation laws and after this recent increase, the Pakistani airspace would now be divided into seven sectors.

This new air navigation plan would improve the safety measures and also help in the better management of the air traffic system. This system will help in better navigation of the flights from Europe and the Middle East besides also increasing the number of flights from these regions.

The new setup would also be a major source of foreign exchange for the country.
